  • Early morning walk is a great place to visit. Clear the air from the center of the city and one of the enemy ships off free and unique plants and trees are also fun to watch from the rabble. Inside the Park is a statue of Hungary rose garden outdoor theater artists are having them might give you a wide range of photo zone, and enjoy. Tram ride is put up not far from the location using public transportation.

  • Nice walk at the edge of this island. To do in cycling or running. It was very nice. It is possible to rent bikes on site.

  • Firstly, You should see if there are festivals but are not, you can see even so. You can rent a bike or bike-car in this island. I don't suggest but if you think that 'i can' try :)

  • A really lovely island worth a visit. A great place to walk around. Lovely gardens, fountains and monastery ruins. It is family friendly, I only visited during the day but I am sure it would be just as nice in the evening. Also a good running track which was being used by lots of joggers.
  • Lovely island in the heart of Budapest, a green patch in the sea of buildings, a perfect location for several occasions, quiet, romantic and beautyful. I would recommend taking a stroll, especially on the newly refurbished Margaret bridge.
  • Best place to go all year in Budapest! :) If you like running then even better, there is a track that goes all around the island.
  • Very nice island with one of the best fountains I have seen. Best to go later at night to see the fountain to see the lights. There's a running track around the outside of the island which is about 5 km long and has distance markers.
  • It's the place where the downtown goes when they needs nature. The island has huge parks where you can hang out, lay down or take a walk. Busier during weekends and may worth checking the clubs and pubs in the evening.
